Military Park

Broad St
Newark, NJ 07102


As the most significant historic park in downtown Newark, Military Park serves as the primary gathering space for surrounding businesses, residents, and visitors. Once taken as a symbol of urban decay, Military Park is now in the midst of a dramatic revitalization that will transform the park into a stunning, highly active space that will include a new restaurant, restrooms, beautiful gardens, and daily free programming from yoga and capoeira to outdoor concerts and games. The park will be privately operated and managed by a nonprofit corporation, the Military Park Partnership, which is staffed by Dan Biederman and Biederman Redevelopment Ventures, who transformed Manhattan's Bryant Park. The Military Park Partnership is currently managing the redesign, construction, and ongoing maintenance of the park.
